By my (questionable) count, I've now hit 100 agent rejections on The Lipless Gods. Lucid topped out between 100 and 120. There are still 30+ potential happy endings out there, but at this point my hopes are not high. They are reasonable. And I do have bourbon, needs be.
Thus ends the sob story portion of this update.
The good news is TLG finally hit 50 downloads - on top of the 3 verified purchases. I feel like a real author. I'm looking forward to seeing a review - good or bad (and I still offer some sort of compensation for anyone reading this who actually threw down $$$ for TLG -- up to and including access to the infamous Sipe Christmas short story).
I'm still perplexed about how to advertise Lucid's upcoming release. No surprise since I haven't advertised TLG all too well outside of the Smashwords-Facebook-Twitter-Blogger echo chamber.
I'm sure things will become obvious. It only took 3 weeks of having TLG up on Smashwords before I realized there was a giant 'Create Widget' button on my TLG log-in page. Der. I blame my sister. She dragged me by my heels everywhere until I was like 4.
Or - if you're feeling like a Moneybags - only $.99 at Amazon.
